Faith Speaks - Bible Devotional 12th February 2019

Faith Speaks

MATTHEW 17:20 NASB 20 ... if you have faith ... you shall say to this mountain ...

The action of Bible faith is (primarily) speaking (and standing on your statement of faith). Jesus said if you had faith -- you would say!

There is no such thing as just silently believing. What you believe will come out. If you don't have enough confidence to say it, you don't really believe it.

LUKE 17:6 NASB 6 And the Lord said, "If you had faith ... you would say to this mulberry tree ...

MATTHEW 21:21 NASB 21 ... if you have faith, and do not doubt ... if you say to this mountain . . . it shall happen.

For faith to operate, it must be released through spoken words, according to Jesus.

What you speak is evidence of your faith. Another way of saying that is: your speech reveals what you believe.

2 CORINTHIANS 4:13 NASB 13 But having the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, "I believed, therefore I spoke," we also believe, therefore also we speak;

If you believe, you will therefore speak.

LUKE 6:45 NASB 45 "The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth what is evil; for his mouth speaks from that which fills his heart.

MATTHEW 12:34 NASB 34 "You brood of vipers, how can you, being evil, speak what is good? For the mouth speaks out of that which fills the heart.

You speak what you believe in your heart. Not always, for you can pretend or lie. But when your guard is down and you speak spontaneously without thinking, you will say what you believe in your heart.

ROMANS 10:8 NASB 8 But what does it say? "The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart" -- that is, the word of faith which we are preaching,

Where is the word of faith? In the heart and in the mouth. For faith to work properly, it must be in both places.

ROMANS 10:10 NASB 10 for with the heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.

What you believe in your heart must be expressed through your mouth for it to produce. Salvation means deliverance. So this is the way Scripture tells us people can be delivered and set free: believe in their heart, and say it with their mouth.

SAY THIS: I have faith in God, so I will speak up.

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

Psalm 100: 4

"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
